DC crime siege - stand up and stay strong for small businesses in Washington DC

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, February 22, 2024 / -- As the city continues to grapple with a surge in crime, local businesses are feeling the impact. DC Scooter, a beloved community shop, is on the brink of closure due to repeated robberies at gunpoint. The shop has been targeted over 10 times in the past year, with thieves stealing scooters, equipment, and even cash. In an effort to keep their doors open, DC Scooter is calling on the community to donate and help fight against the rising crime rates.

The recent string of robberies has left the owners of DC Scooter devastated and struggling to keep their business afloat.

Each theft has resulted in significant losses, including scooters, charging equipment, tools, computers, POS systems, and cash. The shop has become a prime target for teenagers wearing ski masks, who have shown no mercy in their repeated attacks. The owners have been left with no choice but to turn to the community for support.

DC Scooter has been a staple in the community for years, providing affordable and reliable transportation options for locals. The shop has also been actively involved in community events and initiatives, making it a beloved and integral part of the neighborhood. The owners are determined to keep their doors open and continue serving the community, but they cannot do it alone. They are urging the community to come together and donate whatever they can to help keep DC Scooter from becoming another victim of the city's rising crime rates.

The owners of DC Scooter are hopeful that with the support of the community, they can overcome this challenging time and continue to serve the community for years to come. They are grateful for any and all donations and are committed to using the funds to improve security measures and prevent future robberies. DC Scooter is a testament to the resilience and strength of the community, and with their support, the shop can continue to thrive and be a beacon of hope in the face of adversity.

Donations can be made directly to DC Scooter's GoFundMe page or by visiting the shop in person. Every contribution, no matter how small, will make a difference in keeping this community business from leaving Washington DC like so many others. Let's come together and show our support for DC Scooter and the community it serves.
